Narrator Dan Stevens Downton Abbey presents an uncanny performance of Mary Shelley's timeless gothic novel, an epic battle between man and monster at its greatest literary pitch. In trying to create life, the young student Victor Frankenstein unleashes forces beyond his control, setting into motion a long and tragic chain of events that brings Victor to the very brink of madness.
How he tries to destroy his creation, as it destroys everything Victor loves, is a powerful story of love, friendship, scientific hubris, and horror.
Big Brother is watching you The world is divided into three superstates. Every action, word, gesture and thought is monitored under the watchful eye of Big Brother and the Thought Police. Over time, the impulse to escape the machine and live independently takes hold of him and he embarks on a secret and forbidden love affair. Animal Farm is George Orwell's great socio-political allegory set in a farmyard where the animals decide to seize the farmer's land and create a co-operative that reaps the benefits of their combined labours.
However, as with all great political plans, some animals see a bigger share of the rewards than others and the animals start to question their supposed utopia. Bertrand Russell's A History of Western Philosophy serves as the perfect introduction to its subject; it remains unchallenged as the greatest account of the history of Western thought. Charting philosophy's course from the pre-Socratics up to the early twentieth century, Russell relates each philosopher and school to their respective historical and cultural contexts, providing erudite commentary throughout his invaluable survey.
Traumatized by the bombing of Dresden at the time he had been imprisoned, Pilgrim drifts through all events and history, sometimes deeply implicated, sometimes a witness. He is surrounded by Vonnegut's usual large cast of continuing characters notably here the hack science fiction writer Kilgore Trout and the alien Tralfamadorians, who oversee his life and remind him constantly that there is no causation, no order, no motive to existence.
Enthralling radio dramatisations of eight of Charles Dickens' much-loved novels. Charles Dickens is one of the most renowned authors of all time, and this second digital volume of the dramatised canon of his work includes eight of his classic novels.
This collection includes the epic masterpiece David Copperfield , described by Dickens as his 'favourite child'; suspenseful mystery Bleak House ; Dickens' most openly political novel, Hard Times ; and Little Dorrit. It's , and Bernard Marx and Helmholtz Watson are token rebels in an irretrievably corrupted society where promiscuity is the norm, eugenics a respectable science, and morality turned upside down.
There is no poverty, crime or sickness - but no creativity, art or culture either. Human beings are merely docile citizens: Into this sterile society comes an outsider, John - a man born into squalor and suffering, but raised on The Complete Works of William Shakespeare , a book which has shaped his entire life. When he discovers that treasured ideals such as love mean nothing in this 'brave new world', where romance is ridiculous, marriage shocking and parenthood shameful, John's world is shattered - and his reaction will show Bernard and Helmholtz what rebellion really means Based on Aldous Huxley's masterpiece, widely considered one of the greatest novels of all time, this chilling dramatisation set in a futuristic totalitarian society stars Jonathan Coy, Justin Salinger, Milton Lopes and Anton Lesser.
Running time: A must read. It is my hope that everyone reads this book, so this future can be avoided. I usually love a BBC dramatisation, but this one cut out too much in order to come in under time, and lost a lot of the internal struggle of the characters.
I enjoyed the performances, but would have preferred the unabridged story. Everybody belongs to everybody His description of the future on human relationships are surprisingly accurate. A well good read from the cast.
BBC has taken some liberties with this piece. This was a great introduction to Brave New World. Makes listening a pleasure and more of an experience rather than the fullness of reading the entire book. Enjoyed it very much. Amazing story, and great dramatization. I did not know what had affected society in this way. From Krypton to the sex clubs in Vegas.
I am besides myself. An excellent production of a classic. Characters were deep and meaningful. I really enjoyed this, and will listen again for sure. Really enjoyed radio production. A nice break from single narrator reading the original text. One of my favorite books with a refreshing interpretation of scenes and characters different from my own.
The telling of Brave New World seemed to lose a little in the Radio 4 dramatisation.

I cannot explain why I was thinking more about the houses in leafy Surrey where this would be heard rather than than the morality tale and commentary on a modern society. Suffice to say the acting was good but for me too staged.
I followed the story but was not swept up in it. Perhaps in hindsight a reading of the book would have been better. I have read the book and watched the old Hollywood movie and both put this piece of garbage to shame.
Once again modern update ruins the plot. Such a difficult book to condense and dramatise but this is a very good radio play adaption. Aldous Huxley.

John's one joy was that his mother had taught him to read although he only had two books: a scientific manual from his mother's job and a collection of the works of Shakespeare a work banned in The World State. In the final chapters, John isolates himself from society in a lighthouse outside London where he finds his hermit life interrupted from within by lust for Lenina.
